The Princess Bride Soundboard – Android App Review
One of my favorite movies growing up was The Princess Bride, and this year marks the 25th anniversary of that fine film. Android Apps involving the movie are few and far between, but we did find an awesome little soundboard by the folks at BlinkifYouCanHearMe. Ready to check it out? As…you…wishhhhhh….
The Princess Bride Soundboard let’s you relieve and remember some of the greatest parts from the movie, and as a fan I can honestly say it has damn near every one of my favorite lines. What sets this app apart from the other soundboard or any other soundboard as far as I’m concerned is the quality and sheer number of quotes. From the main screen of The Princess Bride Soundboard you can browse by character, and let me tell ya’ they’ve got all the great ones. You can hear quotes from characters like Buttercup, Fezzik, Miracle Max, Count Rugen, Westley, and of course Inigo Montoya. There’s even a section of additional sounds that include the shrieking eels, sword sounds, music, and buttercup pacing. You can play any sound you like by browsing the apps easy to use layout or click random to let it do its own thing.
Thought we were done didn’t you? Nope, as the Princess Bride Soundboard has even more awesomeness in store. You can save any clip from the app as a ringtone or a notification sound! Guess whose ringtone and SMS sound’s just changed. Last but not least, you’ve got the play movie button which doesn’t let you watch the movie, but rather listen to it as it plays all the clips in order starting with the beginning and it even puts in the sound effects. As a child of the 80s who used to listen to late night shows like Moonlighting on the radio when it was past my bedtime, it’s a nice touch and it’s very cool to just sit back and listen while your imagination takes care of the rest.
Soundboards are a dime a dozen, but The Princess Bride Soundboard is vastly superior to any other one I’ve tried, and It’s pretty safe to say this was an app made by a fan of the movie for fans of the movie. A lot of work was put into this little gem, and it really shows from the awesome opening screen all the way through. If you’re a fan of The Princess Bride and want to celebrate its 25th year The Princess Bride Soundboard is a great way to do just that. If you’re ready to hear Fezzik’s line “I am the Dread Pirate Roberts…” or hear Vezzini say his famous “Inconceivable” head on over to Google Play and pick up BlinkIfYouCanHearMe’s The Princess Bride Soundboard for free.
